Jeffrey Park

Princeton University, BS; University of California, San Diego, PhD

Professor Park’s current research includes mapping mantle flow associated with plate tectonics, using seismic anisotropy, as well as using scattered seismic waves and seismic anisotropy to infer aligned cracks and rock fabrics in the crust. His interest in earth sciences began after the 1971 earthquake in Sylmar, California tossed him from his bed. Professor Park teaches Earth System Science and Introduction to Seismology at Yale.
